Transperant golden color but not lacking in flavor. Carries well balanced flavors of hop and sweet fruit. Smooth flavors, quite delicious yet not mild in flavors. Minimal carbonation. Very much a Belgian beer in taste.

Bottle. I know other beers that can cure my delirium tremens, but it appear to do the job.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 From bottle - Pours hazy light golden with floccolated yeast chunks and a huge foamy white head. Aroma of candied fruits, spicy yeast, bubble gum, and hops. Taste is sweet, yeasty, and a bit acidic, notes of orange peel, bubble gum, and clove. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with typical lush and foamy Belgian carbonation. Delicious, but not stellar.

From tap at Rich O’s - Pours bright light golden with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of bubble gum, grassy herbs, candied fruits and hops. Taste is herbal and fruity with notes of bubble gum, pears, and noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with lush carbonation. Having this on tap makes me think my bottle was a bit old. Rating is from the tap.

Really good Belgian beer. Even people that don’t like Belgian beer will like this one.

Rather pale looking, but has a really smooth and sweet taste. It’s good, but I wonder how it got best beer in the world, maybe in 1998 the competition wasn’t there.

Not sure what all the hype is about with this beer. A good beer, but I wouldn’t go and call it the best beer in the world. Had a yeasty, hoppy flavor. Good beer, I wouldn’t turn it down, but I doubt I’ll buy it again.

2005 bottle: Already this beer has gone extremely flat and sour with no carbonation. A light background of yeast to spice it up but this beer doesnt have long cooler life.
